I guess a few hundred pro football players definition of "tough" is different than a couple of posters on HF. Honestly, if you get back up after taking the hits that Buck takes, you are tough and that's all I really see to it.
You're not getting what I'm putting down. Myself after repeated knee injuries and recurring hyperextensions playing competitive sports I could be considered equally tough. I always got back up if I could, always tried.
I never considered myself tough in that regard however. What I felt was I was always one bad move/hit/incident removed from injury. I certainly wasn't football or hockey tough. I had to give up those sports entirely.
If somebody called me tough for that I would think they're being sarcastic. I could barely get through a tennis match at the time..
